Unlike Mission Ready Mining, which wardecced Kalorned's gank alt corp, Vendetta Mercenary Group did its research. They correctly identified the corporation that Kalorned was a member of and declared war.
In less than 24 hours, the mercs would be able to freely attack Kalorned's bumping Orthrus. In the meantime, each side positioned its chess pieces and prepared to strike.
Vendetta Mercenary Group's preparations consisted of accusing Kalorned of breaking the EULA. The accusation spread like wildfire in Mission Ready Mining circles, which had long suspected our Agent of cheating somehow.
The carebears and their hired guns grilled Kalorned in local. If they could get a confession on the record and petition CCP, maybe Kalorned would be banned before the wardec went live. It was the safest approach.
Our hero toyed with the miners by switching to each of his gank alts and having them say something in local one after the other.
RM24 > I don't think any human can alt tab that fastThe MRM miners were now certain that Kalorned had gained an unfair advantage over them. It was the only explanation for their staggering defeats thus far--since they did not yet believe in the power of the Code.
Kalorned > RM24 yeah your probably right
Kalorned > you would have to be a super human
RM24 > I'm either right or wrong... so what is it?
RM24 > I'm right that no human can alt tab that fast
Despite the persistence of MRM's interrogators, Kalorned managed to avoid giving them a smoking gun. He was one slippery Orthrus pilot, that Kalorned.
RM24 felt confident that he was closing in, but he never quite managed to close the deal. MRM and Vendetta Mercenary Group's pre-war strategy had failed. Worse yet, they were unaware that Kalorned was quietly maneuvering to checkmate them.
Kalorned won the war against Vendetta Mercenary Group by dissolving and immediately re-forming his corporation. This tactic was long considered an exploit by CCP. But several years ago, in a desperate attempt to garner favor among carebears, CCP changed the rule. Highsec carebears had begged CCP for total immunity from wardecs, and the corp reboot tactic did the trick--for smaller corps, at least. The Agents of the New Order love to turn the carebears' own weapons against them, and as Kalorned's employment history shows, he frequently did so.
lil Pheonix > Kalorned rip closed corp againMission Ready Mining had hired Vendetta Mercenary Group to put a stop to Kalorned's bumping campaign. Unfortunately, they only succeeded in wasting a wardec fee. True to form, the highsec mercenaries immediately declared that their contract was fulfilled.
lil Pheonix > VMG wins again
lil Pheonix > VMG WINS AGAIN!
lil Pheonix > Kalorned every time you close corp
lil Pheonix > I win
The next day, Kalorned and his gank alts returned to the Gelhan system. One of the MRM miners, Menomine Hekki, ominously declared that something would happen in three hours.
She was referring to the wardec against the gank alt corporation. MRM's alliance, Fly Fearless, had declared war the day before, and the war was set to go live in just three hours.
Since all of its members were at -10 security status, Kalorned hadn't bothered to reboot the gank alt corp. Yet the pilots of MRM acted like they were certain that the war would change everything. Did the carebears have something up their sleeves--something Kalorned didn't anticipate? Or would they simply fail again?
To be continued...
I remember the time Harassment INC accused my corporation of doing an exploit by leaving our corporation and putting in placeholder alts so the number of members matched what we had before.ReplyDelete
I find it hilarious that WARDEC ransomers have no problems putting in place game mechanics to give them a big edge over smaller corporations, but when smaller corporations like mine pull a fast one by doing exactly the same thing -- use legitimate game mechanics -- we are somehow cheaters and exploiters.
I think you are Lawrence LawtonDelete
I think your an idiotDelete
Thank you for the kind wordsDelete
Ehnea Mehk sucks code COCKDelete
These miners are in some serious denial. They are so green (with inexperience and with envy) that they mistake fleet warps for input broadcasting.ReplyDelete
STOP CALLING ME A JEW YOU NAZI.Delete
I found a picture of Lawrence.Delete
So Professor, to you this is elite PvP. This is also roleplaying. So that means that you role play a character that is ok with killing unarmed people, now think about that.Delete
You can accept and play as a person who is actually perfectly fine and happy to promote killing unarmed people.
A sandbox game allows players to express who they are deep down inside but do not do so in a public setting for fear of reprisal.
That means you are in fact an actual person who is ok with killing unarmed people.
Nerfed blog the trolls win again. Code fail.ReplyDelete
I like the part about the carebears begging CCP for total immunity from wardecs, THIS NEVER HAPPENED, though I understand it is your story telling style.ReplyDelete
Yeah James lies his ass off in here and his little bots eat it up.Delete
So Kalorned is using bots for his alts. Wow hypocritical of you guys to allow agents to use programs to do their work for them.ReplyDelete
No shit lots of agents do this, I mean the names are a dead give away. SHIT they bot it up so much its stupid.Delete
I AM NOT YOUR SLAVE!ReplyDelete
If you purchase a permit you will be.Delete
Trolls win, ALWAYS!ReplyDelete
Winners and still minerbumping champions.Delete
Good to see the miners fighting back by declaring war against a corp full of -10 sec status ganking alts. Now if only all the other miners would also wardec New Order ganking alt corps, they could finally take down the New Order!ReplyDelete
Ha what we need is a good ganker ganking group to gank the gankers. Did you catch that. I mean since these gankers hate bots and use em so much we need another group that hates bots and kills these guys.Delete
CODE griefers are like a bad sitcom that has been on the air far too long. Just embarrassing yourselves. Sad, so very sad.ReplyDelete
I see code has failed again proving that they cant even keep their own site a nerf free zone.ReplyDelete
The mighty code has been nerfed! WOW no wonder you fear mining lasers, you cant even stand comments.ReplyDelete
Hey James ya having fun approving and deleting all these comments so your little minions can stop crying for a few days. Busy getting your next blurb ready to talk about how great you are, programming your little minions so they know that the Kool-Aid is good for them as they strap into their suicide vests and go blow themselves up.ReplyDelete
Space ISIS. Dumb fucks.
And since you will be reading this prior to it being deleted or posted you did good convincing people that they can trust you and then leading them to be shitty fuckwads who make fun of real life death all while telling others to leave reality out of a game. Ya did great making them uphold rules that they themselves don't follow, and ya did real good exposing so many people for what they deep down want to do, just indiscriminately destroy shit. Because nothing lets you bring out the inner personality that you keep locked away like a true sandbox game.
You people seriously bitch too much about being exposed as the very thing you claim to hate.
Calm down, minerDelete

Typical behavior from Kalorned the Coward, and his master Jamey.
They are all this way, every last one of them are spineless and when faced with conflict they run away with their tail between their legs. Kalorned did just that by rebooting his corp. Can't even act like a man and take the wardec and fight, typical code cowards.Delete
Miners whine about hypothetical censorship, yet the fact all this QQing by miners remains on the site is proof of James315's justice.ReplyDelete
